I used to love A&E’s Biography. They did a great job of presenting biographies of historical figures in an entertaining and informative way.
Nowadays, Biography seems only to tell the stories of entertainment figures. In fact, it appears to have become in large part a promotional arm of the movie industry. (New Ben Affleck movie coming out? Time for a presentation of The Ben Affleck Story on A&E’s Biography!)
So how, why, and when did this happen? Anyone else have any thoughts on the decline of this once-great show?
